During the foundational Mindful Self-Compassion training, many participants experience the extraordinary nourishing and healing quality of self-compassion for the first time. With sustained commitment, practice, and dedication, a deep level of embodiment and integration can begin to take root in the practitioner’s daily life. For this reason, we created the Community for Deepening Practice (CDP).

Because this is a graduates’ course, CDP is a deepening and elaboration of MSC. Participants re-commit to integrating and embodying self-compassion into daily life through regular, long-term practice in community with others. This more slowly paced, spiral learning approach allows participants to savor the practices anew as a way to consciously embody, expand, and deepen their learning.

There are many extraordinary classes available online for those who wish to practice mindfulness or self-compassion; one thing that makes this experience unique is that we cap class sizes at 25 participants to engender an environment of being seen, felt, and heard; this is especially important during the social distancing and isolation some of us are experiencing during this phase of the pandemic.
